HARTFORD “MAY MOVE FORWARD” WITH DEVELOPMENT AROUND BASEBALL STADIUM

HARTFORD “MAY MOVE FORWARD” WITH DEVELOPMENT AROUND BASEBALL STADIUM

 

HARTFORD, CONN (August 8, 2019) – Today Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher issued two decisions clearing the way for Hartford to develop the parcels around Dunkin’ Donuts Park, writing that “Hartford may move forward.”  Judge Moukawsher partially lifted the automatic stay of the jury verdict last month and discharged the liens on the parcels around Dunkin’ Donuts Park. 

“Last month, we won a huge victory at the jury trial, and today we won another big victory for Hartford – clearing the way to develop the lots around the ballpark,” said Mayor Luke Bronin.  “We’ve been preparing for this decision for a long time, and now we look forward to moving as quickly as possible to get the development started.”

“This is great news,” said Randy Salvatore, RMS Companies Chairman & CEO.  “We are thrilled with the ruling and we stand ready to finalize our legal agreements with the City, so we can break ground on this transformative project in the very near future.”

Hartford’s City Council approved the selection of a developer, RMS Companies of Stamford, CT, following an RFP process and the City is finalizing a development agreement with the company now.  RMS Companies recently helped renovate the Goodwin Hotel in downtown Hartford.
